I?ve seen the glances from people in their warm, cool, or dry car (depending on the season) with what looks like pity, or perhaps shock. As the rain pelts and the wind nearly drives me to a halt, I think to myself, “Do they see me and wonder why I would choose to bike in such inclement weather?”As a year-round bike commuter in Chicago, it’s no exaggeration to say I’m exposed to every combination of weather on my 26-mile round trip, and often all in a single day.
As a collegiate rower at Western Washington University, Heather Kelly struggled to find a healthy diet that fulfilled her demanding athletic needs. And after lots of research, she had an epiphany. ?I came across the paleo diet for athletes, and it all made sense,? says Kelly, evolutionary sports nutritionist, certified psychology of eating coach and owner of Heather?s Choice, a line of healthy dehydrated meals and snacks she manages from her home near Anchorage, Alaska.
It’s that time of year again when the Beatles song “Dear Prudence” comes to mind: The sun is out, the sky is blue…And you know what that means: It’s summertime, the season to get out of the house and embrace the warm weather. A good start? Day trips are the perfect way to get outside and entertain the whole family. In the Pacific Northwest, we’re fortunate to have a wide variety of choices for day trips, hikes and activities to experience our area’s beautiful scenery.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
